What I want from my blogging tools
Posted on 25-Oct-2014 18:06 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


My blog set up is nicely tuned. It could be better.

As the moment I†write posts with Byword on my MacBook Air. Sometimes I start a post using Byword on an iPad or iPhone while on the move.

Although Byword can post direct to WordPress.com, I publish posts as drafts. That way I can do a final tidy before adding categories, tags and featured images.

When I hit Publish, WordPress sends a link to Twitter, Google+, Linkedin and FaceBook.

In What I want from a blogging platform Dave Winer says heíd like:

The full text should be sent to Facebook or/or WordPress, including a link back to the original post. Revisions to the post flow to Facebook and WordPress.

Now thatís something Iím about to work on. I thought of using the Macís automation tools to do this, but Rajeev Edmonds suggests I use an IFTTT recipe to achieve the same goal. So thatís my next rainy day project. Adding Google+ to this would be good.

The tough part will be getting those revisions to flow back ó somehow I donít think thatís going to happen soon. If you know how I can manage this, please let me know.
